If mitosis or meiosis fails what is the consequence?
New cells will not be produced.

Mitosis- its a division of one cell; into two identical cells. prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase and cytokenesis are the steps. Meiosis- its a division in which o…ne cell divides into four different cells. Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, then prophase 2 metaphase 2, anaphase 2, and telophase 2, and Cytokenisis are the steps. *hope this helps!* :) Mitosis, and Meiosis are both where the cells divide into either 2 daughter cells (Mitosis), or 4 sex cels (Meiosis. Meiosis and mitosis are both types of cell division. Meiosis is thekind that is necessary for sexual reproduction, while mitosis isnecessary for general body growth and healing.
Mitosis makes new cells that are used during growth, development, repair, and asexual reproduction. Meiosis makes cells that enable an organism to reproduce s…exually and happens only in reproductive structures. They both lead to cell division, rest is different. Meiosis leads to reductional division, taking place in sex cells only while Mitosis takes place in somatic (body) Cells. Meiosis produces 4 daughter Cells and mitosis produces 2.
From one parent cell you will get 2 cells from mitosis and from one parent cell you will get 4 cells from meiosis
1.The diploid number of the species remains constant generation after generation 2.Genetic variations (new gene combinations)
Both meiosis and mitosis are forms of cell reproduction. They both have a prophase and an anaphase. Both are forms of cell reproduction/ Both are forms of nuclear division.… Meiosis occurs in generative cells and mitosis in somatic cells.
A possible consequence of errors during mitosis could be that two daughter cells don't contain the correct amount od chromosomes. This would result in the cell killing itself …during interphase because of this genectic error.
A cell and its chromasomes.
Somatic cells undergo mitosis, and gametes undergo meiosis.
A zygote is created by the fertilization of two haploid cells created by meiosis. Because a zygote is fertilized by two haploid cells, it is diploid. It then has to divide and… grow though mitosis like any other body cells.
Germ cells. Somatic cells perform mitosis to get genetically identical daughter cells, and germ cells perform meiosis to get genetically different cells. In gametophytes, it's… known as generative cells.
Meiosis is very similar to mitosis. Meiosis produces two "half-cells" after the first cell division. Mitosis, however produces two fully genetically capable cells. After mitos…is, the cell products can reproduce by themselves. Meiosis is a "modified" version of mitosis, meant for genetic diversity. Mitosis probably existed way before meiosis, simply because it is easier to execute. Meiosis produces what is called a gamete. These gametes, or 'sex cells' cannot reproduce by themselves. These half-cells are meant to be combined with the complementary gamete (egg with sperm) to maximize genetic diversity and promote evolution. Mitosis is the simplified version of meiosis, and meiosis is the "modified" mitosis. You often find mitosis in simple organisms, meant solely for reproduction purposes. Meiosis is more common in evolutionarily advanced organisms, such as mammals.
Mitosis: Cells undergo mitosis to replace dead cells. If there is/are cell(s) absent in any part of the body, mitosis occurs to replace the missing cell(s). So basically, if …an organism is able to keep all its cells from being harmed in any way, mitosis will never be required as no cell will need replacement. Meiosis: Cells undergo meiosis to form gametes (sex cells). These cells are able to fuse with the opposite gamete in order to fertilize and create offsprings. If meiosis did not occur, the continuity of any species that reproduced sexually would be in jeopardy. Because meiosis occurs and gametes form, individuals become fertile and are able to produce offsprings in order to continue their species.
In Zoology or Animal Biology
meiosis and mitosis do not work together because they replicate different types of cells. They are different because (1) the number of daughter cells produced after the end o…f the cycle (2) meiosis goes through 2 stages while mitosis goes through one and (3) they both reproduce different types of cells.
Humans do both. Meiosis is sexual reproduction while mitosis is thedividing of cells to produce new ones within the human body.
Yes, it involves first mitosis, then meiosis, creating 4 sperm cells at the very end from one germ cell.
